Virgil Winston: Marketing Guru

My Uncle Rex has always said there was nothing more boring in life than watching a Kevin Costner film. And this is the same man who owns The English Patient. What’s more, he didn’t care how many Academy Awards he won for Dancing With Wolves, it was as bad as Waterworld, a movie he said would have been much better had it taken place on land. Yes, he feels strongly about the subject, which is why I will never let it be known that one of my favorite all time movies is Field of Dreams. It’s not just a baseball fanatic’s fantasy, it’s a promotional marketer’s fantasy as well.

It starts with the famous line, “If you build it, they will come.” This is the driving force of the movie and the reason Costner builds his improbable baseball field on top of his Iowa farm. Of course, “if you build it, they will come” is also the marketer’s mantra as well. Build what you ask? It doesn’t matter, as long as it’s better, cooler and more interesting than what was previously offered.

Well, Rush Imprint has built it…and I’ll bet you’ll be coming for it. It’s the USB Liqui-Hub. That’s right. A hub. An “anti-Kevin Costner” hub if you will. Now, this isn’t your everyday, run of the mill USB Port. This one has a miniature globe that floats in a blue sea. In other words, it’s a conversation piece, a desk ornament and a functional piece of equipment. It has four ports and a blue base with a 72″ attached USB cable. There are also two wells on top for pen holders. What more could you ask for? And, as always, Rush Imprint will deliver in a flash.

Well, I better go. I’m taking the whole family out to dinner and, surprisingly, everyone can make it, proving I suppose, that “if my wife doesn’t cook, they will come.”
